Arkansas DOT Wins Three 2021 Perpetual Pavement Awards

LITTLE ROCK, AR — The Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA) announces that the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) has won all three Perpetual Pavement Awards for 2021. Arkansas and Washington State are the only two states to have received awards in all three categories.

In the "PPA: By Performance" category, ARDOT was recognized for its performance of Highway 9 in Stone County. This is ARDOT’s 12th time winning this category.

In the "PPA: By Design" category, ARDOT was recognized for its design of I-49 in Benton County.

In the "PPA: By Conversion" category, ARDOT was recognized for its pavement rehabilitation efforts on I-530 in Jefferson County.

This is the inaugural year for both the "PPA: By Design" and the "PPA: By Conversation" award categories.

“We appreciate the Asphalt Pavement Alliance for recognizing ARDOT in these three important areas,” said ARDOT Director Lorie Tudor. “It is an honor for our work to be acknowledged by our industry peers.”

For all three awards, the project must meet strict Perpetual Pavement criteria and demonstrate the characteristics expected from long-life asphalt pavements: excellence in design, quality in construction, and value for the traveling public.
